The Cross Timbers Chapter is the group of certified Texas Master Naturalists who coordinate volunteer efforts for the Fort Worth area. Anyone can become a certified Texas Master Naturalist – certification is based on training and volunteer service that enhances your ecological community.
The Texas Master Naturalist Volunteer Program is designed to promote an understanding of the complex system we call nature. But it goes one step further – it’s a challenge for all to serve as trained volunteers to preserve and enhance the performance of that system.
Our action-oriented chapter was formed in 1999 and currently consists of approximately 90 members. We service Fort Worth and the surrounding areas, and are very fortunate to have prairies, forests and wetlands, all in or near our highly-populated urban setting. Our members really make a difference – we work hard to repair and maintain the fragile beauty around us, and we introduce countless children and adults to the importance of natural resource conservation.
Is to develop a group of well-trained volunteers to provide education, outreach, and service dedicated to the beneficial management of natural resources and natural areas within our own communities.
